Stories for You
I am so happy to say filters are now working on the stores! Filters let you more easily find exactly the style, size and color you are looking for among our hundreds of styles. For example, see the screenshot at right from our women's shoe store, Shoe Ooodles. Now instead of just browsing page after page of women's pumps (which you can still do of course!), you can select your size by clicking on it in the window at the left of the page (the example shows size 8) which would display all shoe styles that are made in that size. If you also select a color like the Red / Burgundy shown in the e..
Pleaser Brand Shoes
Pleaser was the first shoe company I found when looking for products to sell and they still are one of my favorites and one of our best selling brands. They have a great range of styles, great prices, and offer fast shipping directly from their warehouse located in sunny California. Pleaser USA, Inc., launched in 1993, started out as an importer and distributor of urban fashion footwear. Over the years, it has evolved into a specialty footwear powerhouse serving exclusively the needs of various alternative lifestyles. With seven distinctive footwear brands which encompasses a vast col..
3D Printed Dress
I have been fascinated by the awesomeness of 3D printers and their printing of toys, guns, even human ears, but never thought I'd see them used in fashion. But designer Michael Schmidt has proved me wrong. Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese showed off the first-ever 3D printed dress in March. Michael Schmidt designed the amazing gown and has created looks for Cher and Lady Gaga. The dress is a combination of Teese’s old school glamour and Schmidt’s idea of futurism, and while it may not be entirely wearable, it’s certainly cool looking. With the help of architect Francis..
I finished updating all the Demonia and Pleaser shoes and boots currently on the store with their new pricing. Most prices have actually dropped - some by as much as 10-20%! Of course a few items did go up - mostly the genuine leather boots, but the vast majority of items are now lower priced! I was a bit too ambitious to think I could get the prices updated and add the other information, stock update and additional photos at the same time. I will finish doing this probably over the next few weeks, but the prices are at least current. I will also be adding many more Please..
Shoes have come a long way from a unitarian piece of foot protection to high fashion and even works of art - or torture depending on the shoe and heel height! What is it about something so simple that has us paying big bucks for designers like Manolo Blahnick and Christian Louboutin? I have to admit, I never felt I was obsessed with shoes - when I was a teen, I tended to have one pair of flats, one heels, one light or white, one black and that was about it. Since I'm 5 feet 11 without shoes, I never went for the super high heels - 2 to 3 inches were my normal selection. When I was eng..
When I decided to add Mystery boxes to the store, I did it mainly to help get some stuff out of the warehouse - some stockings, gloves, panties and so on that have been hanging around. What I did not realize was how much fun it would be to put together for the customers that order them! Which store you order the Mystery Box from will help determine the mix of items I put in it. Fetish Fashions boxes will have more crotchless items, vinyl, fishnets, etc than our more vanilla lingerie store, Sensual Elegance. CrossDress Fashions will have less panties since most of the g-strings and crotc..
That famous scene of Scarlet O’Hara holding onto her bedpost to be strapped into a very tight corset turns many people off the idea of ever trying them. However, that is the extreme. Corsets should be worn snug, but not “omg I cannot breath” tight. Only steel boned corsets should be considered for body modification or extended wear – plastic boning will break over time while the steel bones will probably outlast the corset fabric! And you can put them on yourself – though the first time you wear it, I do suggest having a friend’s help. There are several ways you can lace a corset – some cor..
Corset vs Bustier
We feature a lot of lovely corsets and bustiers both lingerie and clothing styles. I know they can be confusing though so thought I would explain a bit here. Select corsets are shown on several of our stores, but for our full line of busiers and corsets, please browse Corsets Plus. What is a Bustier? Dictionary.com defines bustier as “a close-fitting and strapless top without sleeves that is worn by women either as lingerie or for evening dress,” though strapless isn’t always true. Close-fitting is definitely true – bustiers are generally very form fitting tops generally with a bit of st..
